    passively camped in the pg for 4 hours so far and collected 591 tokens. so at 6 k per ped with out shooting sweating is more profitable for a noob considering gained skills and sweat.

    keep in mind this is with only 2 functional spawns and no one else there to shoot. so things change if thoese factors change.

    Did a small test in the Proving Grounds today. If players would try to farm tokens by killing each other it would cost around 0.016PED/4 Tokens. Atm. player isn't healed when entering in arena so it takes 1 HK shot to take him down. 1 shot = 0.0058PED in ammo and very small decay, let's just make it ~0.006PED total. Then we take into account 5 sweat, if we buy it for 2PED/k (I'm sure you can get it cheaper on Calypso in large stacks), then it is another 0.01PED. In the end we get ~0.016PED cost for 4 Lime Tokens. 1k tokens would mean 250 kills and that is ~4PED total. 4PED/1k is as cheap as it could get by fighting.

    Coat cost would then be ~2200PED

    Any volunteers? :D

    This is probably the answer to this question:

    Thanks TunerS for the calculations/tests.:beerchug:


    So if I'm paying 6ped per 1k token that means if someone were to collect all 550k tokens and sell to me they would make a profit of 3.3k-2.2k = 1.1k peds...

    Divide it by 2 as you need at least 2 players with this method, also count in that after each kill you need to wait 10 seconds (reviving time) + at least 5 seconds for another entering attempt as after you accept the entrance fee you get dropped back to revive yet again + another average 10 seconds at best to track each other down = 25 seconds for 1 kill = 137500 kills = ~955 freaking hours!!!

    No thank you :D

    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to weigh in on the Coat of the Proving Grounds. This item is intended to be a long term goal, and is not expected to be collected in the span of 1 VU. I think that Cyrene has shown that it wants to reward long term players, and this is no exception. One thing to note (especially for you George) is that there will be events that take place where many of these lime tokens may be earned for winning such events. We really did not want to see anyone overpay for such tokens because of a lack of communication.

    I can't really say too much but, this coat is NOT just for wild looks (and yes it is meant to be flashy, gaudy, I dare even say, ugly), but if you wear one of these coats, you'll be able to get a access to unique missions in future content VU's by talking to specific NPC's.

    How far in the future, is hard to say, as with many things on Cyrene the changes that happen are because of the players, how they play and what they do. There may also be limits on such items before they are changed to new rewards, making these very limited, though once again this is not information I am allowed to hand out. Please, always keep in mind that Cyrene does things a bit different. If something seems really odd and does not make sense, it is because we are giving you a clue that change is about to happen. Since this is still soft launch, this information is released a bit more. In the future, I doubt I will be allowed to disclose such information. That said, you have been warned, and advised as best as I could. Ed was kind enough to let me hand out this tidbit and I hope it helps you all better make the choices you need and realize the aspect of risk/reward.

    Hope I didn't say too much, but the players are a major focus for us and we always want to be as open as we can.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Thanks for the reply Kris but I think you have said far too much. Not only have you confirmed certain things for me but you have given me additional information which I wasn't too sure about. I think this highlights one of the reasons why MindArk tend to stay quiet. They have gone through such things in past as well no doubt and I believe arrived at the conclusion silence is the best option. Which understandably players don't like, it's a dilemma this game will find hard to resolve.

    I apologise for making this thread and partly feel at fault here because it's my actions that have led to this.

    Under the circumstances I'm not sure what more to say. As a player it's more difficult for me as I don't have as much info as yourself only theories, which may or may not be right...

    i disagree with you about being to much info. and caly does give info out like that also i believe. i seem to remember them giving out info about the aurli mission needing to be done to enter the spot to farm for bones. i could be wrong of course.

    we need people in the hub playing. have some use for a really hard to get coat adds desirablity to being in there shooting and farming tokens. which adds more fun for me if there is some one else shooting in there or atleast someone to shoot at. its been pretty dead in there lately since the entrance tokens stoped dropping and it was always a fun way to spend a ped or 2 over the course of an hour and have some fun.

    i think that the use for the coat should have been included in the vu notes to be honest.

    @non yes you are right about that but but.....and it is here I must stop talking, self-censorship. At least I think you are because sometimes MA do release info although can't think of any specific examples on top of my head...

    Truth is that lime green tokens are worthless. The only thing you can buy is coat.
    You need 550000 - yes 550k lime green tokens and you get coat worth 5 peds.
    1100 tokens you can farm few hours is worth 1 pec.
    I see you all here exposing corectly economy of cyrene hub lime green tokens.

    Your probably completely wrong. That coat is probably very valuable. Priceless items don't always have a label on them saying "Priceless item buy me".

    It takes a lot of effort to get and has only 5 ped TT value which is quite nominal.
    Do you really think having the coat as worthless will make people want to get lime green tokens? nope it won't, to encourage people to collect lime green tokens the coat has to be valuable.

    Sometimes what looks like the most worthless and useless item can be the complete opposite. The coat appears to fit that bill perfectly.

    Hopefully with the update tomm some of the mystery surrounding this coat will be revealed.
